(LifeSiteNews) — On this week’s episode of The Bishop Strickland Show, Bishop Joseph Strickland shares a few nuggets of spiritual wisdom based on recent tweets and urges the faithful not to ignore messages and warnings from Our Lady.
On cherry-picking the faith, His Excellency says, “Trying to accommodate religion to what our likes and dislikes are … that’s too much of what is going on. Accommodating it to us instead of accommodating ourselves to the truth that’s been revealed to us. It’s not the faith, it’s not what Catholicism is about.”
On loving our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, he says, “It’s tragic how so much of the world, even people of faith, operate as if we’re in charge and we’re doing it … The Eucharist is the best way for us to hear His voice with clarity, with charity, with the power of His love, but really bringing us to our knees and bringing us to repentance of our sins and resolution to follow His truth. It’s a glorious future that He lays out for us, but we have to listen to Him.”
Bishop Strickland also reminds us to listen to His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is the mother of all the faithful as well. He advises us to pay more attention to the messages and warnings she has given.
“As a human family and even within the Church, I know that in my years growing up, the emphasis on really listening to Our Lady of Fatima, it wasn’t pounded into us the way it should’ve been,” he says. “People were listening, but it’s just like, ‘Well, you can believe if you want.’ But it’s been recognized by the Church as authentic.”
